However one new fashion designer, Suzanne Rae, who introduced her new Sping/Summer collection at New York Fashion week, seems to be dismissing this cold weather with her brilliant sun-inspired clothes.
I love her use of pastel colours which are teamed with this light cotton feel which just screams Summer at its audience.
This is one of my favourite pieces. I could just imagine myself walking on a hot beach in Hawaii or somewhere wearing this little number. And the colour just makes it.
This tribal print dress is perfect for those warm Summer nights. And the stapless slight sweetheart neckline is lovely for the season.
I love how she teamed certain outfits with sunglasses on the New York runway. Her concept of the Spring Summer trend is great- although it is quite, simple. I don't necessarily mean this in a bad way however. I like the simplicity of the outfits and the bold patterns and colours that she choses for her materials.
Her new collection is a joy to see on the runway. Her use of different materials and how she creates them into a the perfect Summer outfit is a delight. It would be great to see a new Autumn/Winter collection nearer the time.
Here's hoping she sends a 'Rae' of sunshine to the UK sometime soon.
